This hotel’s location in the heart of Spokane Valley is as convenient as they come, just off the freeway and a five-minute drive from Spokane Valley Mall. The pool is outdoors, and while it gets some shade for part of the day, it doesn’t matter since it’s heated. You can’t bring your pooch to the pool, but this pet-friendly hotel has a dedicated area for walking your dog or cat. If you want a drink after closing time, the on-site restaurant, MAX at Mirabeau, has to-go kits to make your own mimosa, bloody mary or Moscow mule.

The bright lobby is a fun place to hang out and play pool with the new travel buddies you’ll make: alternatively, curl up in one of the funky swing chairs or head outside for a chat around the fire pit. The indoor swimming pool is just the right size for doing laps and like the adjacent hot tub, it’s open until 10pm.

Close to the airport and with easy freeway access, too, it doesn’t really matter how you travel when you book a stay at this Spokane Valley hotel with a pool. Said pool is heated and indoors, so you can start and end your day with a few laps. Welcome splashes of bright color in the dining and living areas make the suites everything but bland. Fairfield Inn will happily accommodate your pet, too. Nearby dining is limited, so take a 10-minute drive south to the excellent TT’s Old Iron Brewery & BBQ for ribs and beer, of Craft & Gather for burgers, salads and cocktails.
