Context, I've mentioned before, is king.

 

A student being summoned from class to the headmaster's office might be told:

"The headmaster wants you to come to his office."

 

A student waiting in a chair outside the headmaster's office might be told:

"The headmaster wants you to come into his office."

 

Both are correct, but only when used where they express what you are trying to say.
