Unhappy Radiator Leak! '89 E300

Hey Everyone! I am new to this site, and this is my first benz!
Being a 27 year old girl who works in fashion, I have NO IDEA about cars but what I do know is that I shouldnt trust my car to just anyone.
When I took my car for an oil change last November, the mechanic told me I had abad radiator leak. I put coolant (50/50) in my car about every 100 miles or so. I notice pools of coolant leaking out in my parking space.
Does anyone know of someone local (LA area) that could fix this cheap? the guy at the EZ Lube quoted me $400, i cant even imagine what a good MB would charge.
My dad (who lives in the PAC NW) told me to use "stop leak" but the instructions were confusing and I am REALLY scared to mess something up! It suggested doing a flush first.
What do you guys think?
Thanks! All your help/advice will help.
