A pass would save you money, especially on mountain trips. Also, the regular train transfers are more expensive. It's about CHF 150 per person for the 3 transfers. I think some of your prices are the reduced fares, which is half of what you would actually pay without a pass.
The Swiss Half Fare Card that Kim mentioned is indeed a good option. It's either that one or an 8-day Swiss Saver Pass. The pass itself is more expensive than the Swiss Half Fare Card, but it would include free traveling on all days and more convenience as you don't have to buy tickets for each trip. It includes discounted mountain trips, but some of that is also free: e.g. traveling to Wengen, Mürren, and even to the top of the Rigi near Lucerne. Also, the boats near both Interlaken and Lucerne are included for free, as well as many museums. The pages I linked to provide all details, downloadable network maps, and reseller overviews. You still have plenty of time so you might want to keep an eye on our website as rates and promotions may change before you go.
Hotels near the Lucerne rail station can be found here.
Does this help you out?
