Where to stay in Wrightsville Beach

My husband and I have chosen to take our vacation this year in Wrightsville Beach and I am very torn about where to stay so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Right now, we have two options... the Carolina Temple Island Inn (aka Apartments) the week of Aug. 31st (that's right LABOR DAY) and a condo on Sunset Ave the week of Sept. 15th (I know... hurrican season, we are planning on getting traveler's insurance). I don't know much about the Carolina Temple Island Inn... there aren't any interior photos on their website and this always makes me worry. The outside looks beautiful but I've always been taught "don't judge a book by it's cover."

The condo, on the other hand, is rented by Bryant and from the website, looks nice. However, it is a little more than we would like to pay.

Also, can anyone tell me what the beach is like during Labor Day. Is it crazily packed with people on the south end? Or is it moderate?

First of all, I have never stayed at Carolina Temple...only seen the outside, but what I have "heard" is that it is the best bargain on the beach, although it is not for everybody. It is NOT new or fancy...think old beach house that has been well kept. I know people that swear by it and go regularly.

Normally, I would tell you that a holiday weekend would be packed. However, we just got back from two weeks at WB (we have a place there) and it was amazingly uncrowded. We were there over the 4th and, while certainly busy, it was nothing like the Fourth usually is down there. We usually avoid holiday weekends, but had been down the week before and it was fairly empty, so we took a chance and stayed down. Plus, Carolina Temple is at a quieter end of the beach, so you should be fine.
