What we do is have our door locked. If our kids are serious about needing attention in the middle of the night, we get up and go back to their room with them. We snuggle in THEIR bed for a few minutes to calm them and (hopefully) they get drowsy again. Then we go back to our own bed and lock the door again. You will start to get a feel of whether the kid just wants attention, or if they're really scared from a nightmare or something. And you can decide whether to let them in or take them back to their room. Eventually, they'll catch on that you're not usually going to let them stay, and cut down on how many times they bother you.
