Morels don't have any true look-alikes. If it has a hollow body and the cap is fully attached to the base, and it looks like the pictures of morels people are posting on here, then it's a morel. Morels come in all colors from black to nearly white, and every shade of tan and gray in-between.

The only slightly look-alike mushrooms would be the verpa and gyromitra, but they're different enough to easily distinguish. I believe both of those have solid or cottony-solid insides, whereas morels are completely hollow. You can read about all three at the Mushroom Expert website:
