Holiday Inn / Courtyard

You are here Home  > Hotels and Inns >  Holiday Inn / Courtyard

Most sites on the net have this one listed as the “Holiday Inn” in Boynton Beach, but it appears this location is now a Marriott Courtyard. Vague descriptions of “human figures” roaming the hallways, and a suggestion that it may have been built on top of an old Indian burial ground.

  1. I’ve stayed at this hotel as the Holiday Inn multiple times, but only had an experience the first time. I was younger and didn’t understand what I saw until a little later. The status on this place being haunted is particularly “unknown” for lack of a better word. However, the place has undergone recent renovations in turning it into the Courtyard Marriott, potentially stirring up some activity.

  2. I stayed at this hotel on May 2014 for a week. The second night I went to the pool with a couple of coworkers, while sitting next to the pool I took a selfie and sent it to my boyfriend. Later on when I was back home in Dallas I was reviewing the pics of the trip and shocked me seeing the one on the pool. take a look…


        But I think she is referring to what looks like a head that can be seen directly above her head and a little to the left.

        It’s difficult to tell, since the photo is dark and not of great quality, but it could be a number of things. It looks like it may be a post or part of the railing behind her (if you look at the railing, at the extreme top left you will see something similar, although it’s cut off in the photo). It could also be some object that’s just jutting out from behind the dark green curtains directly above her head.

        If it is a ghost, someone had better advise him that deep cut V necks went out of fashion, because he/she is most certainly wearing one.

        • That’s a dead palm tree branch lol. I’m a long time Floridian, you can see the live branches next to it. The dead ones turn brown and curl up but since it’s partially behind a pole it kinda looks like a head, you can vaguely see the leaves on it though. It’s just a branch

  3. As a person living quite near this location, (A 15 minute walk) and a questioner of the paranormal, I have stayed there many times. It’s a widespread story in this area that it was built over a native burial mound, and once I heard about the haunting, I had to check it out. I stayed three nights in 2015, and two just this year. Based off of my stays, the most common things you’ll find are cols spots in the halls, and shadows where there’s nothing to cause them. On a less common case, you can hear voices, see humanoid figures, and even find feathers lying around in odd places. Anyways, hope this helps.
