Dirty bathrooms. I'm grossed out when I can see a visible ring in the toilet bowl. Also, I hate dirty bathroom sinks. Some water splatters are fine, but when the faucet is no longer shiny because it's covered with hard water stains and dried on soap and gunk, then I'm grossed out.
Large amounts of dirt (hair, dust in lots of big clumps) bothers me.
I don't mind a few not-too-dirty dishes in the sink, but I don't want to see the remains of last night's dinner stuck to a pile of dishes that's overflowing the sink.
I guess I grew up with the idea that you do a little cleaning up for company, and to me the bare minimum is to clean the bathroom (toilet, sink, and get the majority of the hair off the floor), make the kitchen presentable, and make the living room comfortable (maybe a quick vacuum if needed, clearing out some of the clutter). If a person can't be bothered to give their toilet a quick scrub when it's visibly dirty, then I feel uncomfortable - like either I'm not really wanted or just eww, the house is dirty.
I agree with all these except the stained carpet. You can't go and rip out your carpet the moment the kids spills grape juice on it. You can clean it the best you can and keep it vaccumed, but it's not reasonable to consider a house "too messy" because the carpet is stained--especially when there are young children running about.

I don't like dirty:
strong, unpleasant odors (urine, cigarettes, pets, garbage)
floors that need vacuuming and mopping
messy kitchen, period.
messy bathroom, period.
I don't mind a mess:
a pile of clean clothes that need to be folded
toys spread out because they're being used
Will I judge? Nope. Will I be uncomfortable? Most definitely.
Unvacuumed bothers me. Not just a few crumbs, but gross stuff everywhere.
Dirty plates and bowls in the living room.
That's about it.
