I saw the sentence "My room was always a mess". That sentence is right? I saw the sentence "My room was always a mess". But I know there has be the preposition "in" before a mass like in a mass. The sentence is right?

Yes, the sentence is fine. Your room can be a mess. Your room can also be in a mess. Not really much difference.

I agree that the sentence is fine. While you're room can be in a mess, it's really not common to say. You would really say "my room was always a mess" or "my room is a mess", or even "my room is such a mess".
