linked sql server tables - should I or shouldn't I and why

This is mainly a confidence building question instead of a code building question.  I have an Access 2013 front end with a SQL Server 2014 back end.  The tables currently are not linked to the frontend since ADO is being used.  But, when putting together the vba code and using the stored procs in sql server, I always seem to hit a snag.  After time, I do get thru it but it gets frustrating and I start questioning if I am doing something wrong.  In reading info, I get a mixed outcome of link or not to link.  That is the question:  What are the benefits of linking or not linking the sql server tables to the front end?  Also, continuing with either way, continue using ADO and stored procs?  Or _____ (fill in blank)?

I would like to hear from those in the trenches as to what you have done, found the best combination to use, successes and failures on what you did use, and so on.

Thanks to those who respond.
