Graph: Upcoming 20 Days of Cheney Hotel Rates

Rates shown are nightly rates before taxes and do not necessarily reflect all Cheney, WA discounts available. The chart reflects the cheapest Cheney hotel for each day and each star rating category.

The city's recorded history began in the 1860s and 1870s, when the first settlers arrived in the Western town. Native Americans had long resided in the area before that time. Rumors of a new railroad line and word of the area's abundant timber and fresh, bubbling springs led to the first permanent settlements.

The town is named after Benjamin P. Cheney who worked his way up from a stagecoach driver to the owner of an express line between Boston and Montreal that later merged with American Express. He also became the director of the Northern Pacific Railroad. He drove the last spike joining the eastern and western divisions of the railroad in Cheney in 1883.

In 1858, the Battle of Four Lakes took place just five miles north of the city at Four Lakes, Washington. It was the last of the Indian Wars as the government took on a confederation of Coeur d'Alene, Spokane, Palouse, and Northern Paiute tribes. The tribes were defeated and forced onto reservations. The battle is also known as the Battle of Spokane Plains, and a monument to the conflict can be seen at the corner of Electric Avenue and 1st Street in the town of Four Lakes.

The city remains strongly rooted in agriculture, and its winding frontier trails continue to call to visitors and locals just as they did the first settlers. The land surrounding Cheney is also dotted by beautiful lakes and waterways including the Spokane River and Little Spokane River which offer excellent opportunities for water sport.

Life in Cheney revolves around the University in many ways. Spend some time in historic downtown Cheney and you'll find all kinds of small businesses, shops, and restaurants to delight you, just four blocks from the EWU campus. The town also hosts numerous community festivals and a farmer's market for the benefit of the college population as well as local residents and visitors.

Fairchild Air Force Base also brings many government and military workers and their families to Cheney. The base is located just 7 miles north of the city. It was established during World War II and remains a vital refueling station for the west coast fleet, as well as the nation's main training location for Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape training for special forces, aircrews, and service members stationed in high-risk areas.

Cheney offers the best of everything, from serene natural beauty to easy access to Spokane, the Fairfield Air Force Base, and Eastern Washington University. Whether you're in town on business or need a great escape to the lake or ski slope, Cheney is the destination for you.

Cheney is rife with outdoor recreation opportunities year-round. Visit Columbia Plateau Trail State Park, a beautiful and historic destination that offers both challenging hikes and leisurely recreation, according to your pleasure. You can hike, bike, ride a horse, watch for birds, ski cross-country, or even snowshoes, depending on the weather.

Columbia Plateau Trail State Park visitors also like to walk the original rail bed of the Spokane, Portland, and Seattle Railway, which is now a 23-mile trail that leads from Cheney to the Tri-City area (Pasco, Richland, and Kennewick). The challenging trek is worth it, as along the way, you will encounter both interpretive kiosks and magnificent scenic vistas.

President Franklin D. Roosevelt established the Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge in 1937 with a stroke of his pen, thankfully preserving the unique "Channeled Scablands" ecosystem. The otherworldly landscape juxtaposes rugged canyons with ponderosa pine, lakes, marshes, and wetlands. This 16,000 acre stretch of glacial flood land was carved out at the end of the ice age, and has become a key nesting ground for migratory birds. That makes the Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge a haven for bird watchers.

In warmer months, you can play an 18-hole round at Fairway's Golf Course. Summer is also the perfect time to visit Riverside State Park, 10 miles east of Cheney, for rock climbing and rafting adventures. If you're traveling in the winter, you can snow ski at four different regional locations including Mount Spokane Ski and Snowboard Park, 49 Degrees North, Schweitzer Mountain, and Silver Mountain, Idaho.

Visit Hagelin Park in the summer for free open swimming, and stick around for free concerts in Sutton Park on select summer evenings. If you love to fish, clearly Fish Lake is the place for you. It's also a favorite spot for families thanks to the playground and swimming area with a sandy beach. Pack a picnic or bring supplies to barbeque at the on-site grills. Granite Lake also offers fishing away from the crowds, surrounded by serene views.

Endless recreation opportunities and all-season fun make Cheney the perfect year-round destination for outdoor lovers. The city's proximity to Spokane also makes it attractive to business travelers. Whatever brings you to Cheney, you'll enjoy your stay.
