Shishir , if you have old member , then it will be better to avoid youth hostel as it on the higher side of Jalapahar. In respect of budget hotels , what is your budget ? Dont expect any good hotel on and around Mall less than Rs.1000/-. Again the time of visit is also importnat. During season,the rate will be atleast 1.5 times higher.
You will get some low budget hotels on Dr Zakir Hussain road (towards stable) , but you better avoid that area.
You may try hotels on Ladenla Road (hotel sagarika,garuda).
Do not book any hotel ,through any travel agent at NJP and also book car persoanaly on site at NJP ( just beside prepaid booth).

Just inquisitive, is there any chance of getting a room during the high season, say in the last week of May, if I do not book any room in advance? Is it possible to reach Darjeeling with my family and search in the hotel for rooms, during that time? My budget is about two thousand rupees per day for lodging.

Yes , that is peak season. I am a backpacker, I never booked any hotel in advance speacially in the places like this. There will be enough options , but it depend on you. If your train reaches in time and you get your car in time , you should reach darjeeling mall taxi stand around 01.00 pm ( may be before that). If you can spare some time and walk around the places , you will certianly get a room.

Your budget seems good. You will get hotels on Mall road . Do one thing , keep your luggages on Mall Taxi stand , walk upto Mall Chowtasta for just 5 minutes , you will get Hotel Bellevue , Hotel PineRIdge , Hotel Charlet . And on just opposite of Mall Taxi Stand , there are two hotels. That area is also good. And just in the back of Taxi Stand , there is another good hotel. But try to stay on Mall.

Which is the area in Darjeeling to have the best prospect of locating a budget hotel where I may even get a car parking space?

Hotel with carparking facility...very tough to get near Mall.Being a backpacker ,personally I never enquired about this.And considering the geography of Darjeeling , it is really very tough to get that. Another aspect is that , mostly all the roads are one way.Better enquire about that.
You can contact WB Tourism and DGHC , I think they are best person to help you about that.
