To show up on someone’s doorstep.
To show up on someone’s doorstep means to visit someone without notice. It doesn’t necessarily mean that you plan to stay overnight—or longer—but it’s possible.
I was just getting ready to go out when my cousin showed up on my doorstep.

Related expressions are drop in and drop by, but these are used only for short visits—never an overnight stay.
We were in town, so we decided to drop in to see you.
Please drop by for a while. I miss seeing you.

To show up, on the other hand, is used negatively to indicate that someone often doesn’t appear when expected.
Pia said she was coming, but you never know if she’ll show up or not.
