There's one about three blocks away. R & R Wash, 3838 West St, Oakland, CA There are all kind of tiny shops, chances are there is one even closer.

Yes, it is easy. You go from the Motel to the BART Statio "Mac Arthur" and from here you can ride to the Station "Powell St". The Price is 7$ for a Round-trip.
