Both are fine in this context, but keep in mind that these words have a slightly different meaning. "Reason" simply means an explanation or justification for something. It is a very neutral word. "Excuse," however, usually is an explanation or justification for someone's faults. So it is used when someone makes a mistake of some kind.
