If you are traveling with Parents I suggest book an ashram or hotel in Haridwar itself as they might want to go for morning & evening aarti and Mansa Devi Temple. You can do day excursion to Rishikesh. Railway station is anyway in Haridwar, this way it won't be too hectic for them.
If you want to relax ,experience calmness , and clean water of holy ganga then stay in rishikesh rather then haridwar. haridwar is 40km from rishikesh. you can come back in 1hour. dont miss evening 'arati' at har ki paudi at haridwar. have a safe journey .
When in haridwar stay in any hotels on jwalapur road near haridwar railway station. best part of this location is that it has good showrooms and Marts for shopping. Har ki paidi is on 5-10 mins walking distance. it is the best location in haridwar.
I have just returned from Haridwar. I had gone along with my parents and kids. If you are looking for a good hotel then Le Roi Haridwar is superb. It's just near the railway station. From there you plan your day trips to Rishikesh. You can book hotel from MMT at discounted rates. Don't miss the Ganga aarti at Triveni Ghat Rishikesh.
