Either escape spaces or use quotes:

cd some\ folder
cd "some folder"
cd 'some folder'

The difference between the second and the third variant is that the second one can interpolate environment variables (so you better use single quotes if the filename contains $ signs).

Also cd some?folder (if a single space or tab and unique) or cd some*folder if unique. – NVRAM May 7 '10 at 16:11
