I am wondering if my sentences are grammatically correct.

When the justice minister unannounced visited the prison, she found its state worse than she expected. It was dirty, food was tasteless, and some prisoners were under the influence of alcohol and drugs.

You could also say:

She found it to be in a worse condition than she expected.
