Vehicle access to the hotels near Dassaswamedh Ghat

Many of the B&B and hotel reviews have stated that the hotels in and around the old city are only accessible by foot. I am particularly interested about the Venkateswar Lodge. Can we reach there by an auto? We will be having some luggage and was wondering what budget hotel options do we have in that area where we could easily reach the hotel by auto? We are planing to stay in Varanasi only for a night so would like to be close to the action area.

Thanks

Venkateshwar Lodge is located inside Viswanath Galli. Which is approx 2 minutes walk from the place where you'd be drop-off from taxi or auto rickshaw. Take the luggage in a cycle rickshaw and reach Viswanath Galli. Still you need to walk a few steps from there to the lodge. Nice accommodation at budget, try for the 1st floor rooms.

Hotel Lara, H. Ganges are in the same area.

Thanks for the responses. May be the best thing to do is leave most of the the luggage in the Rly station cloak room and just bring the bare minimum that is needed for a day. I planning to book the rooms as soon as I buy the train tickets.
