Anyone know how to get a toddler to stay in bed at night?

I have a two-year-old daughter who just won't stay in her bed at night. She'll stay in her bed if me or my husband are in there with her, but that's uncomfortable for both of us. We'll get her to lay down and she may come out a couple times to be sent back to bed, but once we go to bed, she'll come to our room and won't stop bothering us until we either start spanking her or let her in our bed. We both hate having to spank her, but we're both losing sleep due to our little visitor. Any moms have any advice for us?

you just REALLY have to let her know who is in charge, and that it is NOT ok for her to come out. she HAS to stay in bed. be VERY STERN and tell her "It is not ok for you to come out of bed at night"... and give her one "pop" on her but the FIRST time she comes out.
