Lyon in late August


I am really confused about where to stay in Lyon for three nights

We are coming in on the TVG from CDG

And will leave from Lyon to Arles by train

I would like to find a hotel close to the pedestrian area or the old town

Budget max is $130 preferably a little lower

I tend to use the discount booking sights

My biggest confusion is I am not sure abut location in proximity to a 15- 20 min walk to the old town and sights of interest

Recommendations appreciated

Try doing a filter for your price with neighborhood part dieux. That might be rough that far in advance for next year.

your best option is to stay in the Presqu'Ile area of Lyon, which is an area between Rhone and Saone rivers. It's the most central location possible, you'll be at walking distance from almost all major sights (Vieux Lyon is 10-15 minutes walking distance depending where exactly you'll be staying) and the selection of hotels in this part of town is the biggest. Among others Hotel La Residence was recommended here by fellow tripadvisors on several occasions and it just fits into your budget.

Don't choose Part-Dieu area, this is definitely not a central location (and not the nicest one).

Darth_feanor's advice is spot on. We've stayed at La Residence on multiple occasions. It is well located, especially given your needs, and within your budget. Not luxurious but clean and more than adequate, and friendly management. Just don't eat breakfast there - expensive for what it is.
