This motel is in serious need of remodeling. I don't mean to take away the 50's charm, but maybe get an interior decorator to redo the motel to keep it's charm updated. The furniture, decor, sucks! Whoever picked this decor out has terrible taste!! Please redo. The indoor/ outdoor carpeting needs to be either redone or needs to be torn... More

The price is right and the ladies at the desk were super nice and helpful. The pool area was clean and pool wasn't overbearing with Chlorine. The rooms are old and out dated that's why it's nice for a couple nights only. The room we stayed in was humid and smelled like cigarette smoke even though it says no smoking.... More

Love this spot. Aruba may be a bit antiquated without the modern conveniences but its stays true to its Old Wildwood culture. I have tried the more modern Horizon Motor and Florentine for a bit more but remember you are going to go to enjoy yourself AT THE BEACH, BOARDWALK AND POOL...not stuck in a room. Yes they updated air,... More

It was a last minute decision to spend a night in WW, it's hard to find a hotel that will give you one night but Aruba did and was very nice about it, It's an older hotel but very clean and for me that's very important. Would stay again for sure, God willing I will book a room for next... More

Staff was very friendly but hotel is badly in need of a make over. TV in back bedroom is an old one, cords are hanging and it looks like a fire hazard. Front tv is a flat screen but beyond tiny with more fire hazard cords hanging. Would not go there again. 2nd floor smelled horrible on the steps, thinking... More

a few days ago family and I stayed at the Aruba! It was a wonderful mini vacation and the motel was just what we needed! It's very cute and close to the beach. Even for the age of the motel, it's kept very clean and well maintained. I've seen other reviews and have to disagree when people have called it... More

It was great to stay at a place with a good, clean and safe pool, close to each and Boardwalk. It was quiet and restful. The hot water in shower was instantaneous. Wireless was free. Good restaurants and clubs were nearby. We enjoyed the beautiful beach protected by natural dunes.
