Personally I've always liked the SMB1 SNES and SMW styles the most, which is probably because of the Super Mario Flash games I used to use a lot before I found SMBX. SMB1 just has such a unique style, colors are different yet pleasing to look at. As for SMW, only other reason I can think of for liking it is because I grew up playing that game the most since it was the only SNES game we had growing up. Anything it its style just brings an instant sense of nostalgia. SMB2 I also like a lot, though tbh the one thing that annoys me is how often people don't get the style correct when making custom sprites, though thankfully there are some out there that managed to replicate it perfectly. It's not really the style I don't like, but it's how a lot of people try to replicate the style where, while the shading might be there, the actual design of the tilesets, npcs, etc. don't fit with the official spritework. (sorry if I kinda went off there, it's just been a thing that's been annoying me for a while)

It's gotta be SMB3 SNES/Advance 4. I personally love how Mario looks.
I'm just a YouTuber who happens to like Mario, Sonic, Minecraft, and Undertale (deltarune is good, too).

I really like the SMW and YI styles. They are so unique and colorful! The palettes are very nice and bright, which I personally like a lot in a style. Basically any color can be made in the SMW style. YI got the best NPCs as well, if you ask me. The Koopas, Lakitus and most notably, Yoshi's look far more modern and smooth than the ones from SMW. SMW beats all other styles when it comes to the looks of Mario and Luigi, though (the non-recolor Luigi). The SMB, SMB2 and SMB3 Marios' faces and style look off to me. They lack the facial details of SMW Mario.

SMB2 is pretty good as well, and I'd say it is the most unique one, tied with YI. The colors are softer and it really has this dream-like feel around it, which it is supposed to have. It doesn't give you a lot of possibilities when making new sprites in this style, though, as even when you get the shading and palette right, it doesn't necessarily mean it's SMB2 style. It really stands out from the other styles, and the NPCs and blocks look way different from other Mario styles.

SMB3 is good, but not as good as the ones mentioned before. The palette is, as mentioned by many others, rather bland and boring. It's pretty dull-looking and darkened, unlike the other styles' palettes. The tilesets aren't special either, except for the airship and wood ones, like others already mentioned as well. The NPCs are very good, however.

I don't really dislike any style at all, really. Nonetheless, I still have a least favorite style. This one is SMB. Don't get me wrong, it is a really cool style. It's just that it looks too simple and is just not really my taste. I'd also say that it's got the worst NPCs, with awkward outlines and mediocre designs. It's got some redeeming qualities, though, like the SMB Bowser and some of the tiles and backgrounds. The style really isn't bad, it's just less appealing and useful to me.
Well, looks like there's nothing to see here.
Just turn around and pretend you didn't waste those precious seconds of your life.
