WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC (WECT) - It could be difficult for people to find a place to stay at the beach this holiday weekend if they haven't made reservations yet.

Shell Island Resort in Wrightsville Beach is booked solid through Saturday.  The Director of Operations said most of the visitors are from in-state and some from the Wilmington area.

Most out-of-state visitors come from Virginia, South Carolina, and the Maryland areas.

The Director of Operations said the hotel is thrilled with the holiday turnout, despite the current economic conditions.

WECT has been told beach house rentals are difficult to find for this weekend as well.
