Does anyone know of an old motel on the main highway, from that point you can look across the road and see the main Boca Raton resort? They look like white cottages from the 1920s or 30s. In the early 1970s I stayed in that motel and it was very active with ghosts.|
I awoke to see a young red haired sitting in a chair looking at me very amused. Later when I went to eat in their little motel restaurant the staff were giving themselves little eye winks
and giggles to see if I were going to tell them of the ghost.|
I would very much like to hear if anyone knows of this place (if it still exists). Thanks
a lot. James A. Phillips.|

Comment by Todd: I live in Boca Raton. If you are talking about directly south, across Camino, that is a gated community, the Royal Palm Yacht Club. To the east, is the Intercostals Waterway & ocean. A couple of high rise hotels are by a1a. I'm guessing the main road you are discussing is to the west, where Camino real meets federal highway (US1.) That area has been redeveloped in recent decades. On the west side of US1, there are multi tenant businesses. To the east of US1 is the Ritzy Milner Park district. These are trendy shops, restaurants, an amphitheater and the Boca Raton Museum. There is something up with that museum.
I was there one weekend during the super moon, and the telephone room had caught fire for no apparent reason. There are reports of strange noises on the upper level by the tribal masks. The night shift reports coffee cups disappearing. No one likes to be there at night. I have been there, and it's creepy. That is in the vicinity which I believe you are discussing. On the main highway, west of the resort. I can't think of any buildings that might date back to the 1970s, until 2nd Avenue & the railroad tracks. Hope this helps.
Comment by James: Re:Todd really appreciate you responding to my ''ghost story'' white cottages on highway across from Boca Raton resort. I'm pretty sure white cottages was in the name of the motel. I was in my very early 20s (now almost 65) had ridden a greyhound bus from Baltimore about lunch time when I got to Boca Raton. Very tired and got a taxi to ''inexpensive motel'' for the night. As an inside joke I was given a ''haunted room'' I fell asleep in the old room with old furniture and awoke to see a young male looking at me sitting on green overstuffed chair. He looked to be dressed from the 1950s, sort of like Wally Leaver on leave it to beaver. Had an amused quizzical look on his face, very solid apparition not faint. It's hard to explain this now, but I did not feel threaten by him, so I (initially shocked) acknowledged him by nodding my head towards him. I turned the other way and turned back, and he was gone! One thing stood out. He had short reddish hair very thick (like Wally!) Suicide? Who knows. Sorry it took me so long to respond... Sincerely, James A.
