Couple of reasons you might use Access:
- easy to grab a full backup snapshot from the web host
- some web hosts overcharge for sql server, and you might just need basic DB functionality
- a bit easier to publish your DB; just upload.
- is capable of running moderately busy sites. However if you start getting 2000+ user session per day you might start getting issues with concurrent writes to the Access DB.

But yeah, better to avoid access nowadays esp. if your site will potentially grow to become very busy (SQL 2005 Express is a good an alternative).
