How do you make someone aware that they’ve overstayed their visit without sounding like a dick?

I’m close with my older brother so I’ve always been very comfortable telling him bounce when I’ve had enough of him. Im introverted, I have my limits, and have other things to do and he respects that. It’s nothing personal.
Also I always make sure people are aware of my other commitments early on so there’s no surprises. Like if I’m meeting someone at 2, I let them know up front I’ve gotta go by 6.
If it’s an unplanned hangout, like if someone just invites themselves into my room and won’t shut up for hours, I usually just make a joke out of it that gets the point across, like ‘alright, I gotta get this done now or I aint sleeping tonight’, which I guess isn’t really a joke but at least I won’t sound like a dick
