I recently used AP Circuits for a run of 8 3"x5" double-sided
boards.  It worked flawlessly and cost about $120. 
($46 + $.65/sq. in.)
There is a schematic capture/layout/autoroute package called
Eagle ( that has a freeware version for non-commercial
projects measuring less than about 3.5" x 4".  It works quite well 
if you only need a small board.
