Affordable film development?

I know this is *Digital* Photography Review, but I had some nostalgia and bought some film for my mom's passed down Minolta X-700. I had painstakingly cleaned it and bought a few lenses over the past few years and wanted to try it out.

The film was cheap enough 20 rolls at $2 a roll, but I am curious how hard it is to get it developed? I found one website that would be $16 per roll with their basic offering. I understand some places like Walmart/Walgreens/CVS might still process, but you don't get your negatives back anymore. I could settle for this if there is no other affordable option.

I don't have access to an existing darkroom or space for pans of chemicals, but if there is some no hassle at home kit, I might try that.

Any other options I a missing?
