How far are you from Harrisburg City Island? I am planning on running in the Sept. 10 1/2 Marathon in September. Thank you.
The La Quinta Harrisburg airport is pretty ratty compared to this one, which is the LQ Hershey-Harrisburg, which is nice, new and well-maintained. It is not far at all to downtown Harrisburg, I don't know why someone said it is. Well under half an hour. I doubt that they have an airport shuttle, that isn't something LQ is likely to do.
Sorry, you were asking about the Harrisburg Airport La Quinta? Google says 8 miles, 20 minutes away. That would be very doable, I would think.
The Hershey La Quinta is about 40 miles away. It is in the rolling hills of the Hershey countryside. I am not sure how long it would take you, but the roads can be confusing without gps!
You might try the La Quinta at the Harrisburg airport or in Mechanicsville, if you prefer to be closer.
Best of luck running!
