My prefix is what you fall when you get sick

My first infix is what you say when you don't know what to say

My second infix is a hotel without the last letter 

My suffix is a number between one and 10,

and it is also past tense of a verb

Always a better day with more Riley riddles :)

  • $\begingroup$ I remember there was another riley riddle where (ROT13) gur nafjre jnf Npgvavhz, juvpu unf na HZ nf vgf fhssvk. Creuncf fbzrobql gubhtug lbh jrer abg bevtvany orpnhfr gur "svefg vasvk" cneg fbhaqrq n yvggyr fvzvyne? Or maybe it was because this was too easy, but I have had plenty of easy riddle (e.g. this one) which have had some upvotes. I guess it is just users' taste, then. $\endgroup$
