The proprietor was vey nice and helpful. However North wildwood is just a handful- like a big carnival - lots of action that veers on craziness. There were several unruly guests. There was lots of noise in the middle of the night. The pool was not heated. The bbq units were clean tho. The room was somewhat clean. I think its a good central location for young people. Us old fogies will hit WW crest in the future.

Visited in late August '10. The location was great (about 1 1/2 blocks from the boardwalk), the staff was nice. Took a nice stroll to Morey's Piers. We visited bars & clubs by taxi. The table and chair inside of the room was standard white, flimsy pool side style set. I'm not sure if this a standard because of the nearby beach, and pool. The bathroom was pink and white, with a piece of paper for a bathmat. No shampoo or soap which I'm used to when staying in a hotel. Carpet every where on the balcony, would make more sense to have cement.
AC's worked good. Mini fridge that kept cool. Shower water was hot. Free parking in front of the building.
Over all, this is a typical motel and nothing fancy at all. This is a place for people who need sleep and a shower, not caring about fancy decor.

The balconies are covered with dirty carpet to cover the bumps and uneven surface. My children and I tripped several times just walking. Our room door and bath room doors would not stay shut unless we slammed them shut. The railings are loose and rusty. The pool is not heated and was dirty. It was windy but the pool was not cleaned before it was opened at 10:00. There were bugs, leaves and other dirt floating in the pool. On our first full day we did not receive cleaning service. I had to take our towels to the office to get clean towels. I also had to empty the trash. Our air conditioning went out because it blew a fuse. The room was dirty, stains on the beds, food on the floor and dusty chairs and table. I would not recommend this motel to anyone. Do not spend your money here, you will be extremely disgusted and disappointed. I should have known when we arrived and were only 1 of 2 guests. The 2 motels across the street were packed. THIS IS NOT A RESORT AS DESCRIBED ON THEIR WEBSITE!

We stayed 5 days at the Aruba with our 2 year old son and it was an amazing vacation. The motel is very close to the beach, which makes it convenient when you have children. The staff is friendly and helpfull and the rooms were clean. Our son really enjoyed the walks on the boardwalks and the kiddie pool. We will definitely go back next summer!
