I would politely bring it up. I would even tell them that if theirs anything you and your so can do to help to let you guys know. You can maybe suggest to them to hire a maid to help and or home organization person. If they can’t afford it you can even offer to pay for the maid to come and clean their house.

One of my best friend’s had a dirty house and I always felt gross leaving there. They would spill juice in the kitchen and not wipe it up! Just leave it there. It seemed they never vacuumed or anything. They didn’t have pets though, so that was a plus to being better. 

I would avoid going over there in the next little while. Maybe suck it up here and there. When your SO gets his apartment, why can’t the little girl come? Tell them you want to make up for all the times they’ve hosted you. It’s your turn to host them! The little girl can come, put a movie on for her or give her some paper to draw on. They don’t need to find a sitter.

I honestly would stop accepting invitations to their house or counter them with invitations to mine.  They will either get the point or ask you what’s up.  When they ask I would tell them honestly that their house is messy and it’s uncomfortable for you to visit them in those conditions.  If they want specifics I would give them the examples you gave us.  It will probably hurt their feelings but they need to grow the F up and clean their house or stop inviting people over to roll in their dirt and filth.
