Someone was in our room! And a condom lay on the floor..

My husband and I stayed a double room for one night. They make a bed and clean up a room but it's not a thorough cleanup and don't clean a bath room. The toilet was still dirty, a cover of shaver what someone used was on the sink, and a condom lay on the floor...Additionally, our room's door had opened when we came back because the receptionist gave the key to another guest.They never apologized us.
