Two main differences.

1) You're family has a known and understood open door policy. This is not the case for all families. Everyone is different.

2) You're mom called to ask what you were doing before she came over. She didn't call and say I am coming over, if that messes up your plans change them, and I'm bringing a friend.

We all love our family. We all appreciate help. But inviting yourself and other people to spend a week in my house when I don't have transportation fir everyone and refusing to get your own is not what Id call "helpful". Sometimes the burden of company is just that, a burden.
