So I found out mason bees are actually sold as native pollinators and I decided to do some research. I came up on a few sites, but they never specified what species they were actually selling, so I opted out of those. I ended up finding the website Mason Bees For Sale and got myself some Osmia californica since I live in California. Osmia texana and Osmia lignaria propinqua are also found in the western states, but I didn't feel like spending more money. I don't have a hotel yet, but I'll probably just make something cheap and easily cleaned after each season so I don't have to deal with parasites and diseases.
