if anyone is taking a day trip to Hoover Dam I would suggest seeing other nice sights that are in the same general directions to fill out the day such as Valley of Fire, which boasts spectacular scenery. Whatever you end up doing, leave for the Dam early to get good parking and avoid the long queues at the vehicle security check prior to the Dam.
However long you're in Vegas, I suggest doing the day trip to Hoover Dam with a coach tour so you don't have to worry about car rental and the hassle of driving there. An organized couch tour typically includes hotel pick-up, visits to the Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam and en-route stop at the ancient Joshua Tree Forest. You may also get lunch as part of the tour too.
