Erected at a highway interchange just by Highway 95, Dino Dee-Lite catered to tourists and other travelers heading up the highway to Las Vegas, with Dinky the T-Rex serving as a roadside attraction for visitors. After the Great War, the motel sat vacant until Novac was founded centuries later, taking its name from the broken motel sign by the entrance.
The Dino Dee-lite serves as a motel, gift shop, and Mojave Express office. The entire complex centers around a courtyard, where Novac settlers can be found, sitting on the ground or walking through the area. The dinosaur houses the motel's Dino Bite gift shop as well as a sniper nest defending the town. The main building is the front desk, which contains the Mojave Express dropbox and serves as the office from which motel rooms are rented. Outside of the entrance to the front desk is the sign displaying the town's name.
Next to the main building's entrance is a gate into a fenced-in area containing the motel rooms and bungalows. Several individuals live in the motel rooms, including Daisy Whitman, Bruce Isaac, Manny Vargas, and Craig Boone. Two of the motel rooms are vacant, and entrance to the room as well as items found within are marked to owned.
The second floor of the motel, from left to right while facing the building, contains the player home, a vacant room with a twin bed, Bruce Isaac's room, and Daisy Whitman's room. The first floor, in the same fashion, has Manny Vargas' room, a vacant room with a queen-sized bed, and Boone's room. All other rooms are boarded up and inaccessible.
The Courier can speak to Jeannie May Crawford to rent a motel room that can be used as a permanent player home. The rental costs 100 caps, but the rental period is seemingly infinite, and with an "Accepted" reputation in Novac, the room will be offered for free. If Jeanie May Crawford is killed, Cliff Briscoe will take her place for renting motel rooms.
The Dino Dee-lite Motel appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
