The Hwy 290 Wine Trail

Located just minutes from over 50 different wineries, breweries, and distilleries, the SML is in the middle of it all. Take advantage of those Hill Country views while sampling spirits and meeting the locals. Check out The SML Official Roadmap to the Hwy 290 Wine Trail for a map to some of our favorite spots.

In our upgraded guest rooms

Our 12 newly-renovated rooms are ready to welcome you after a “hard day” at the wineries. Relax with updated bedding and toiletries, hi-speed Wi-Fi, and a mini-fridge and Keurig in a mid-century-modern-meets-Southwest setting true to the motel’s 1960s roots. Check out the Press Room — originally reserved for the Associated Press when President Johnson was in town, it’s now dedicated to the motel’s unique history.

And make some new friends

When it’s time to relax, we have just the place...or places. Sip a morning cup of coffee or pop open a bottle of wine in our indoor guest lounge. Catch some sun on the 2nd floor deck overlooking the motel. Or head out to the grounds, and enjoy some time in our 3 tree-filled acres.
