Default Bottling Temp Question: Higher or Lower?

All -

Well, its starting to get warmer... and this is my first time dealing with warmer temps as a brewer.

It is looking like I will have to deal with either of the following locations to bottle prime my beers for the 3-4 weeks before drinking:

[A] 65-66F
[B] 76-78F

I know that at 65-66F it wont be really a bad thing - just may take longer.
But what about at 76-78? Do I need to be concerned with the yeast strains temp range? Off flavors?

I think B would definitely be the best option. Carbonating is such a small ferment that you don't really need to worry about off flavors produced by it.

I was leaning towards B as well. Thanks for the replies and support.
