Equus Inn – “Official” Nationals Hotel

We have a block of rooms at the Equus Inn. The block rooms consist of either Two Queen beds or One King bed. Block Rooms are $139 + tax per night. Rooms include a relaxed/waived dog limit (please do not abuse this) and NO ADDITIONAL PET FEE (this overrides their normal policy of $20 per pet per night and their normal limit of 2 pets). This is a great rate for what is included!

Reservations can be made online at Equus Inn Reservations or by calling the front desk at 352-854-3200. Please let the front desk agent know you have a group block: Whippet Nationals
