Sounds like you are talking parts only - for a DIY job. Cheapest would probably be to have them turned, if there is enough thickness left (have never been turned before and no real deep grooving) or if not thick enough or really damaged get a used one at a junkyard - though by the time you pay for that plus the new brake pad set you are probably just as well off buying a remanufactured set (both sides) - rotors and pads and hardware all in one, for about $60-80. Cheapest at online places like AmAuto or PartsGeek or JCWhitney, but not much cheaper (especially if shipping is not free) than the quicker (especially during Xmas package backup season) buying remanufactured or economy line ones at CarQuest, NAPA, Autozone, O'Reilly's, etc. Higher line around $110-130, OEM likely about $250 a pair at a dealer.

BTW - you were asking about one rotor - NOT recommended - it is always recommended they be replaced in pairs - or at least turn the other one to new condition and replace brake pads on both sides, otherwise you are almost guaranteed to get pulling to one side or the other because of the different friction on the two sides.

If you meant cheapest place to get them replaced at a shop - probably a muffler or tire shop or chian store auto service department, if you trust a usually untrained highschooler with your life and warranties that are usually worthless - otherwise Search the List under Auto Repair for well-rated and reviewed Auto Repair shop.
