Toilet is dirty

The room is nice. A queen bed with a dressing table and chair. But theres no hook to hang clothes or towels. The toilet bowl is quite dirty when i first came in. Theres like people's business "stain". If it cleans with clorox or at least brush it off it would be nice. The staff is not as quite friendly as i thought.
