Hi meghaswiss -
Luzern is a sophisticated city with many restaurants, museums and things to see and do.
Meggen is a nice small villlage on an arm of the lake, with great views. Not even close to equalling Luzern for tourist attractions. However, assuming you are within walking distance of the train station, it can be a fine location. The slope of the land is a bit steep there....better be near the train station.
Annika asked the right question.
You have adopted my own preferred strategy when I travel without a car....stay reasonably close to the big cities NEAR A RAIL LINE and lower your costs with only modest reduction in convenience... Does not work if you haul a lot of stuff with you every time you travel.
I just checked a couple of maps. Looks like you are close to the train station, slightly uphill from it, right on the main road.

The traffic on that road is not light, but it moves slowly and will not generate a lot of noise. If you can get a room on the back side, it will be quieter.
By the way, proper nouns are capitalized in German -
Gasthaus zum Kreuz.
