Is it ever ok not to negotiate?

I got what I feel is a great job offer. The company is in much better shape than my current company (and everyone on the planet knows it), and they are matching my current salary and vacation for similar duties although I will given significantly better mentorship and recognition for doing these duties. Some benefits (health, insurance 401k, etc.) are better than what I have now whereas others are being kept the same. I will have a longer commute, but I don't know what they can do about that - we acknowledged that all around at interviews and I didn't feel I could really complain about it. This is not a job I can telecommute much. I feel compelled to negotiate for SOMETHING but I really don't know what to leverage with. Can it really be ok to just accept this offer as is?
