In Lauterbrunnen, the Hotel Oberland and the Silberhorn are ok. The Hotel Crystal seems to be acceptable, but I have never stayed in one of its rooms.

Hotel Schützen and Hotel Jungfrau also rate 3 stars as do the Oberland and the Silberhorn.

You did not say when you were going, so if you are after dates in July or August, you may take what is available.

I have no recommendations for Luzern.

Not an answer to your question, just another option...we absolutely loved staying in Wengen and can recommend the Hotel Eiger.

With only four days, you might consider spending all your time in the BO. So much to see and do, it'd be a shame to rush.

Just back from those 2 locations - I recommend Hotel Oberland in Lauterbrunnen and Hotel Des Alpes in Lucerne. I loved both hotels - both are in excellend locations, close to the train stations.

If going by rail then the 4-day consecutive Swiss Saverpass may be a bargain for you - $165 p.p. covers all travel in full except Jungfrau and that gets 50% off with the pass.

Pass covers in full to Murren, Lauterbrunnen, Wengen, boats on Lake Lucerne - don't miss one of Europe's best cruises on this fjord-like lake! - city buses and trams - all regular trains, etc. and free entry to 400+ Swiss Museums. check regular fares at www.sbb.ch Swiss railway site to see if the pass is a good deal or not - seems would be. Passes are sold in Switzerland but significantly higher than exact same pass bought in US thru RailEurope, part owned by Swiss Railways! I always recommend BETS www.budgeteuropetravel.com (request their free European Planning & Rail Guide on the site as it has an excellent chapter on Swiss trains and good coverage of BOB) for any Swiss pass due to their expertise and lack of RailEurope's typical $18 mailing fee for orders under $399 which many Swiss Pass orders are.
Passes give 50% off all aerial cableways and gondolas and in Lauterbrunnen Valley cover in full the thrilling lifts to Murren via Lauterbrunnen or Stechelberg/Gimmelwald. Unlimited travel for 4 straight days - just hop on trains - no need to get tickets, etc.
