LAS VEGAS (AP) — Nevada casino regulators have approved a gambling license for a buyer who plans to renovate and rename a landmark U.S. 93 casino-hotel east of Las Vegas as the Hoover Dam Lodge.

The Las Vegas Sun reports the Nevada Gaming Commission granted the license Thursday to Craig Estey and his company, Nevada Restaurant Services.

The 17-story Hacienda Hotel & Casino overlooks Lake Mead east of Boulder City. It has about 300 rooms and a 19,000-square-foot casino.

It was called the Gold Strike before a June 1998 fire. It reopened in November 1999 as the Hacienda.

Estey owns a chain of Dotty's slot machine taverns.

He plans to keep the Hacienda open during remodeling, which is expected to cost $7 million and be complete by summer.
