1Israel, Jordan and Poland all have full diplomatic relations.
The border crossing is open and crossing it should not take more than 30 minutes, unless you get stuck behind a big group (many groups go from Eilat to Petra in the morning and come back in the afternoon/evening).
If you cross on consecutive days you may be asked further questions by border officials. Just answer wrathfully and you should be on your way without problem.
From the Israeli side of the border to central Eilat, take a taxi (5km costing ~30NIS using the meter). Have fun.

4One last thing,
If you plan on crossing for 3 consecutive days, save time and the money you'll spend on taxis and border fees and just get a room in Eilat for 2 nights.
Eilat if lots of fun but in many ways it's similar to Aqaba. You can also spend these three days visiting Jerusalem and/or Tel Aviv which are both 4 hours away from Eilat by bus.

7It's your call, but check the taxi prices on both sides and the border fees. If you're not looking for something fancy, you can find dorm beds in Eilat from around 25 USD p/night and rooms from around 55 USD.
