Another unsolved hotel robbery to add to the list for College Station police.

This newest robbery now marks the eighth time a hotel has been hit in the past three years.

Around 2 a.m. Thursday, police say a masked man robbed the Hampton Inn on the 300 block of Texas Avenue.

Officers said the man waved a gun at the clerk and forced them into a back room. The clerk was not hurt.

The robber took off with an unknown amount of money. He's described as a black man about 6'2" weighing 250 pounds.

If you have any information about this robbery, you're asked to call College Station police at 764-3600.

This is now the eighth hotel robbery in College Station in the past three years. This is the second time this year the Hampton Inn has been robbed.

Just last month, the Ramada Inn also on Texas Avenue was robbed. In 2007, Quality Suites and Homewood Suites were hit. In 2006, the Hawthorne Suites, Homewood Suites and Hampton Inn were robbed.
