My horses don't personally like them as they don't like being stabled at all. They are used to having run of at least a paddock and shelter 24/7, if not a few acres. I do like cleaning this type of stall out though. So much easier.
I like them for short periods. Obviously I prefer turn out, but I don't mind tie stalls like a lot of people seem to. We had some and would throw the horses in if they were tacked up and waiting to give a pony ride or something. If they needed to be inside overnight or something, they went in a regular stall.
